Console
The Console is a command line interface (CLI) designed for efficiency, providing a streamlined tool for working with Windows PowerShell and Sitecore.
The default security configuration for SPE requires the Console to be in an Elevated Session State before allowing the execution of commands. The following figure shows the Console when the User Account Controls (UAC) are disabled. While this is a common configuration for developers, we highly encourage you to ensure UAC is enabled in higher environments.
